Imagine riding one of the world's most incredible outdoor elevators. Passing through the renowned Peterborough Lift Lock means riding the highest hydraulic lift lock in the world so powerful it can lift and lower boats 19.8 m (about the height of a seven-storey building). This National Historic Site continues to awe countless visitors who experience it. The Peterborough Lift Lock was a triumph of engineering over the challenges of land and geography. Along with other emerging hydroelectric stations, it is a monument to the ingenuity of Canadian engineers, architects, and construction workers in the transformation of landscapes for human efficiency. Stop into the Lift Lock Visitor Centre to see a working model of the lift lock, exhibits and a film. Shop the Nautical Nook Gift Shop for books, souvenirs and charts. Take a drive; picnic, relax and watch boats.
